Week 3 Rankings
Derek Carr Note

It was a great performance by Carr on Monday night, as he continually took advantage of the matchups the Saints gave him. He's completed at least 73 percent of his passes in each of his first two games and has yet to throw an interception. Now onto the Patriots defense, who looked more than human last week against Russell Wilson. They had allowed just 12 passing touchdowns during the entirety of the 2019 season but allowed five of them to Wilson on Sunday night. While I think it's more of a reflection on Wilson, it's clear that the Patriots defense isn't on the same level as they were last year, and how could they be considering the five near full-time starters they lost on defense? They looked much better in Week 1 against Ryan Fitzpatrick, though he was also without DeVante Parker for much of that game. What Carr has going for him is that there's no surefire WR1 on the Raiders for the Patriots to try and remove from the game, though it shouldn't shock anyone to see Stephon Gilmore cover Darren Waller. Knowing that Carr has just one game with more than 21 fantasy points over his last 22 games, it's fair to say the reward is not as great as the risk. There are better options available to stream.
